Early morning sun, Three Cliffs Bay, Gower


An oil painting made in ‘one hit’ yesterday, from drawings and photographs taken some years ago. It’s a subject I’m so familiar with that I could really paint it from memory!

It was early on a balmy summer morning. The tide was high, the sea flat and the air still. The sun was catching the tips of the limestone cliffs. I used a warm burnt sienna ground allowing the colour to peep through in places. This gives the painting a warm glow, with the intention of conveying the atmosphere of this tranquil summer morning.

30 x 30cm oil painting on canvas board. All sales enquiries to pobbles2000@yahoo.com

    Gorgeous! The way the light is reflected and your colors remind me of Monet’s Cathedral paintings!

    Thanks for your very positive and flattering comment, Jen. I often think of the magnificent soaring cliffs of Gower as nature’s cathedrals… although I don’t think I’m yet quite up to Monet’s standard !!! 🙂
